In the link below, there's a photo that shows her cleavage, and at about 11 or 12 seconds into the video, you can get a look at how much of her butt was showing. (In most other photos & video, she is strategically covered with a towel so you can never quite see how much of anything is showing.) The water park asked her to put on a pair of shorts, which she did, and then asked her to put on a shirt. When she refused to put on a shirt, she was asked to leave; when she refused to leave, the cops were called to remove her from the premises. She says this is size and age discrimination, that younger girls and smaller women were wearing "the same size" bikinis. I find it hard to believe that a smaller woman could show quite so much square footage of boobage... but, whatever. In a water park that caters to families, is it appropriate to show as much skin as she is?

I disagree with her that this is a body issue, and that she thinks they are doing it because she was not a young girl with a hard body. I think that top was barely covering her nipples.
She stated that other woman were wearing the same size suits, and they probably were, but she was clearly wearing the wrong size for her body

Um, am I missing something? I don't find her bikini indecent at all and IMO it was lame for them to get her kicked out.
According to the article and one linked within it (nydailynews), the boobs were not the issue. She was told to put on shorts or leave. The bottom she is wearing (in the linked article) is small but it does cover her. It may be the wrong size for her but it does cover all her bits. I do see plenty of teenaged girls wearing suits like that and they don't get kicked out of the pool. I don't think it is a really appropriate suit, but if hers is wrong then they should be kicking out all the other ladies (young and old) whose suits are too small for them and show more skin than they could.
Totally agree with Fuchsia! The bottom of the suit was not an issue at all for me. The top was a little skimpy/skanky for my taste, but the woman has a huge rack....it would be hard to find any bikini that would cover those suckers. I don't think she should have been kicked out for it.

She put on shorts, but refused a shirt. I dont think the bottoms would be the issue for me either, but that top barely covers.

I don't know. I think that that suit IS wildly inappropriate for her body, but is it so inappropriate as to have the police called in? I disagree that it would be hard to find a bikini to cover her breasts.....OR, if it truly is impossible to find one, she should not be wearing a bikini to a WATERPARK, and should stick with a one piece that CAN cover her breasts. Its different than simply lounging by a pool or beach, assuming that she was participating in the waterslides or water stuff.
I don't know, I guess.
I probably have my limits....there is probably some bikini out there that I would find way too skimpy to be appropriate to wear to a water park.
Honestly...from the pictures this one doesn't fit that bill. I find it rather tasteless and not a flattering look at all...but not so inappropriate that she needed to be told to put on shorts or be kicked out.
